Research & links to economy

Right from the beginning, Ulm University asserted its claim as a research university. Thanks to its interdisciplinary and cooperative working methods, the University has been able to establish numerous research concentrations and Collaborative Research Centres both in basic and applied research, achieving successful results.

Bonds between research at Ulm University and the regional economy are strong. Numerous successful cooperations are awarded annually with the so-called "University/Industry Cooperation Award".

But also students profit from these research networks as scientific results use to be transferred to daily study routine.
